    We are looking into sailing away with Mickey and my question is: what is the difference between all of the ships? I noticed dream and fantasy were more in some cases compared to Wonder

    Ahoy Wendi!
    I'm thrilled to hear you are looking into a magical sailing with Captain Mickey! All four ships have a similar elegant feel with a touch of Disney whimsy.  The Disney Magic and Disney Wonder are the classic ships and a bit smaller in size than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.  All the ships offer similar programming for Guests of all ages and phenomenal crewmembers to take care of your family while you sail the high seas.  The main differences between the classics and the newer ships is the amenities offered such as the AquaDuck, the Midship Detective Agency, the adult-entertainment areas, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique/Pirate's League (only on the Disney Fantasy), Goofy's Mini-Golf, and the Sports Simulator.  The restaurants are themed a bit differently on the classics and the shows in the Walt Disney Theatre will vary some. You can't go wrong on any ship or sailing because they are all amazing in their own way!  My advice is to choose the cruise that best fits your schedule and budget!
    The Disney Magic is just about a month away from a re-imagining and will be begin cruising again in late October so you may consider looking into one of Magic's Miami sailing to check out the enhancements.
    Thank you for stopping by, Wendi!  If I can assist you further, please let me know!
    Have a magical day!
